We receive messages, read reports, and heed recommendations to address issues in our school systems. However, we often fail to fully implement them with integrity, lacking inclusivity and consistency. Programs and curriculums come and go in a continuous cycle, yielding minimal progress akin to a hamster on a wheel. "Lead with Two Rules" offers a straightforward and consistent approach to laying a solid foundation for acquiring the skills outlined in the CDC video you watch below.
The video offers valuable insights that support our understanding of the current increase in youth violence and the widespread lack of skills across society. It emphasizes the importance of prioritizing factors to protect young people from violence for everyone's benefit. Implementing Two Rules, which focus on fostering problem-solving skills, positive relationships with trusted adults, and a commitment to education, can empower youth and give them purpose. These strategies align closely with the six approaches suggested in the video: promoting supportive family environments, ensuring quality education, strengthening youth skills, fostering a sense of belonging, creating safe community spaces, and intervening early to prevent harm and provide opportunities for safety and well-being.
Together We Can! Lead with Two Rules and be the solution each day in a world that needs you.
